He entered the plea in Manhattan before U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain.

it's not cause it just weed. it's because people sell it and make money tax free. that's what it's all about people TAX. Just like the mafia, you gotta pay the DON. when you don't pay, you're made an example of in front of your peers, friends and fam. No mercy. Welcome to the Nu America. Technology and money is your governments God and if you don't fall somewhere in that hierarchy then you're just food for the prison system to swallow.

As much as it for weed its for operating a business without proper registration and not paying taxes for millions of dollars. You can't open a store without registering your company.
